saw initially. then we saw, you know, just many, many, many, many hundreds and hundreds of law enforcement officials flooded into the neighborhood. >> and when it came to the actual moment of capture and arrest, did you actually see that happening? >> no. we did not see that happening. we knew when it happened because a big round of applause went up, you know, but the people who were there, i think it was probably law enforcement who applauded first and then all the neighbors heard it so we all applauded. >> it's obviously been a very tense time for everybody in that neighborhood. how are you feeling now it's all over? >> it's been a horrendous week because in many different ways, all of us have experienced the horror of the bombing. myself personally, i was down, i was about ten yards away from the second bomb explosion. so it was a situation where we were, you know, recovering from what happened on monday and then for some of us who live in watertown, especially in this neighborhood, it was kind of what we had already been through. it's been tough. >> you feel very relieved,

, anderson. talking to law enforcement officials this morning, there's two steps. first the question, of course, is, what exactly the suspect is telling law enforcement authorities? the second and related question is, how much of what the suspect is telling law enforcement authorities do they in fact believe, what's verifiable, what they can check out, or what he may be saying because, quite frankly, his brother, the alleged co-conspirator in all of this, is not available because he was killed, you know, on friday. so, there's a lot for the law enforcement officials to do. and we just have to differentiate between what they believe the suspect is telling them and what they believe they can verify and what might be the truth, anderson. >> also lawmakers want to talk to the fbi about their treatment of the older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev, about their interviews with him before he went to russia and any follow-up that they did or did not do, correct? >> yeah. and there's a whole list of questions there, of course, policymakers are asking and we're trying to get to the bottom of what re

surveillance by law enforcement officers. as you mentioned he was intubated and sedated with serious injuries. as the investigation continues the focus today is on what charges he will face and when. one week after two deadly bombs exploded in downtown boston, killing three and injuring 183 people, the only surviving suspect remains in serious condition at beth israel deaconess medical center. as federal prosecutors prepare to bring charges against him, law enforcement sources say dzhokhar tsarnaev is unable to talk after a gunshot wound to the neck. exactly when he suffered this injury is still unknown. >> this is a very complex investigation, and it's hard to say exactly how he received that injury. there was certainly a shoot-out in watertown. there were explosives thrown. so that's being looked into right now. it's hard to say exactly how it occurred. >> reporter: we're learning more about the tense moments right before tsarnaev's arrest. this aerial video shows infrared images of him hiding out on a boat in the backyard of a home in watertown. according to a law enforcement source close
neighborhood had been on lock down, residents terrified as law enforcement went door to door. after the standoff, we spoke with neighbors. here on cypress street, this is one of the houses where police were combing through the neighborhood, looking for the suspect. this is eddie beck's house, he took us through what it was like when s.w.a.t. teams came through here. >> they came in. they searched the living room area, dining room, went through all the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen area, and -- >> searched cabinets and things like that? >> didn't go through cabinets or anything like that but they did go through all the bedrooms, closet doors, then made their way through the back here. >> reporter: beck shared his own footage of the s.w.a.t. teams combing through his house. during the homes they didn't know where tsarnaev was or whether he was carrying explosives on his body. beck got a chill just thinking about it. >> knowing that they had him sur rounded and so close to our neighborhood, it made us think that he might have been here at night time and they kind of flushed him out into

's under sedation. he's intubated. he is in serious condition at beth israel hospital. a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation told our susan candiotti earlier that he had been shot in the neck. it is not clear if that gunshot wound came in the thursday night to friday morning shootout he was involved in with his brother or during the friday evening takedown when he was finally captured, but those are some of the reasons that maybe they could not level charges against him, formal charges against him tonight. that could come in the coming days, don. >> so talk about the bombs, brian. you've learned something about where they came from? >>. >> reporter: that's right. our susan candiotti has spoken with a law enforcement official familiar with the investigation. he says the thinking now is the bomb components were bought by the suspects locally, somewhere here in the boston area. that, of course, is going to be the subject of an intense part of this investigation, where they got the bomb components, how they put together the bombs allegedly and just kind of tracing al
claritin, an allergy medicine, and things of that sort. >> we haven't seen the video, but law enforcement authorities who have seen the video after the bombs went off at that boston marathon, they describe the two suspects we believe they are these two brothers one of whom is now dead and one is still on the loose as sort of nonchalantly cavalierly walking away very confident, very cool as if nothing really had happened even though two bombs within a matter of 12 or 14 seconds went off. let's go to this news conference and get an update on what's going on. >> testing. is that better? thank you. governor first. >> do you need to do something? >> no. >> good afternoon everyone. just a couple of points we want to make, myself, the mayor, colonel albin and chief of the watertown police force, we're not going to be able to take questions. i'm sorry. i know you have many. first of all, i want to -- we all want to thank the members of the public who have respected our request to stay indoors. we know what an inconvenience it is in watertown and in cambridge in particular, but really throughout t

a few officials, one with law enforcement, couple with intelligence, and what we do know is that, of course, this is good news, right? they actually thwarted this plot. we know that it targeted a train route between the united states and canada. one law enforcement official pointed me towards a line that runs between new york city and toronto. it runs actually from buffalo, new york. i'm told that the plan was to detonate explosives in canada. and derail -- and derail the train. and my law enforcement source said there had been some reports that they wanted to wage a spectacular attack, blow up a bridge. he said no. he said what they were doing was to target the train on the tressels, and actually what they wanted to do was derail the train and cause maximum injury to the people on it. >> so two quick follow-ups with you, gloria. first, whether we look at u.s. response here of what happened in boston, canada, an example of it working well, right? coordinated investigation, caught the plot early, and they have been watching it for over a year, haddize izeyes on the si, right? >>
questioning him since yesterday. there is some form of communication between law enforcement and the suspect we believe in writing. pamela brown is outside the hospital for us, she's joining us now. what is the latest on tsarnaev's condition? >> reporter: the latest is that he remains here at beth israel deaconess medical center in serious condition. he is still in the intensive care unit handcuffed to his bed 24/7 monitoring by law enforcement officers. we are told that he is intubated and sedated with a gunshot wound to the neck. so it appears that he is still pretty out of it. wolf. >> doctors are telling us that tsarnaev could put something -- could be getting something that's described as a sedation holiday. i know you've been checking with medical personnel over there. what does that mean? >> reporter: well, i've been talking with our medical correspondent elizabeth cohen and she tells me that essentially this means doctors can decrease the sedation for a few minutes to a few hour so is that doctors or authorities would be able to communicate with the patient. we've seen this before it
and sedated. >> all the law enforcement professionals are hoping for a host of reasons that the suspect survives because we have many questions. those questions need to be answered. >> in this photograph taken right after his arrest, the college student's neck area appears covered with blood. the younger brother'ses cape was busted when a man found him hiding in his backyard boat. thermal images shows a white image of an object projecting heat. in another still photo you can make out the suspect's feet in black lying in the boat. a robotic arm moves in and lifts the tarp. . the police chief tells wolf blitzer about those moments. >> we began negotiations that way. over a long period of time, we were able to finally get him to surrender. >> agents yell at him to give himself up. police say there was an exchange of gunfire. authorities said his injuries came during thursday night's shootout when his brother was killed. agents spent the day combing over every inch of the boat collecting blood, hair and more to build a case against the suspected boston marathon bomber. and today prosecutors
and therefore the younger brother is going to be able to relay that to law enforcement or are they going to continue these sort of dark patches where we have questions that will never be answered. >> last about the latest incident. two men in canada that apparently wanted to derail a train from canada probably headed to the u.s. they are identified as having support from al qaeda in iran. >> right. >> a lot of threads here. do they make sense to you? >> they don't make sense to me. that doesn't mean they aren't true. but as we've learned this week. as we've learned in the past, we should always be cautious about the early reports. one thing the canadian mounted police said there is no state sponsor. even if there is an al qaeda link it's not iran supporting attack. and it makes no sense what iran is doing. we're in negotiations. they're about to have a presidential campaign. this is not the way iran tens to operate. of course al qaeda and injury. she vows to dance again and run in the boston marathon. this is what she had to say to cnn's anderson cooper. >> i landed and was -- sort of cl

hill later today, when law enforcement officials brief lawmakers. john? >> all right, barbara starr, thanks so much. barbara starr in washington. i want to bring back fran townsend, cnn analyst, former homeland security adviser to president george w. bush. and fran, i want to get your take here. where do you think the investigation stands right now? we've had these initial criminal complaints given dzhokhar tsarnaev. we've seen sort of the case laid out just a little bit. but how about the investigation itself? what are the next steps? >> well, first of all, we know from investigators that they're cooperating with the russians. i talked to sources, federal sources, and the cooperation between russian authorities and the fbi is quite good. both want to understand what they might have missed, what they should have seen, and what they should have made of it as this case is unfolding. you know, there are questions about the older brother tamerlan's travels to russia, what he did and who he met with. those are the sorts of questions that are following up. in the meantime, here in the uni

of the quality of person he was. listen. >> i believe he had the calling. he just wanted to be in law enforcement. it wasn't about the pay or the benefits or the retirement. it was about what law enforcement was supposed to be all about, that's to help people. he was a master at helping people. i think m.i.t. lost someone that truly cared about their community. and i think we lost someone that we learned more from him than he ever learned from us. >> reporter: at 26 years old. >> at 26 years old. >> reporter: says a lot. >> i've been a cop for almost 40 years. you see a lot. you really do. i just never saw anything like this. it's heartbreaking. everything about it is just wrong. killing him was senseless, the loss of a person of his quality, his age, the fact that it happened on a college campus. everything about this is wrong. >> reporter: and, don, also tonight, we talked to three m.i.t. students that are alalso emts and they were close friends of collier. they came with flowers and messages for his family. interestingly what we learned is they not only were close friends of his, but they were
